Course Description

The Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Hons) through Open and Distance Learning (ODL) at MAHSA University is a 4-year undergraduate degree programme that prepares students for a career in healthcare. Physiotherapy helps improve movement and functional ability, maximizing the quality of life through promotion, prevention and treatment in the rehabilitation of patients with neurological, cardiorespiratory and musculoskeletal disorders.

Students will immerse themselves in the study of applied and functional anatomy; physiology; pathology; physiotherapy rehabilitation science; research methodology, clinical reasoning, and evidence-based clinical practice. They will acquire skills in manual therapy, therapeutic exercise prescription and electrotherapy, all of which are the essential components of physiotherapy management. During the course of this programme, students are required to complete a minimum of 1200 hours of clinical practice.

The teaching methods include lecture and tutorial sessions on the e-learning platform. Self–instructional materials will be uploaded to the online forum prior to lecture or tutorial sessions. Integrative teaching approaches through discussion and seminars will be held through this online platform. Lecturers will facilitate learning through the use of case scenarios. Practical sessions will be conducted through face-to-face teaching where hands–on skills can be demonstrated. For diploma graduates, credit transfer is allowed with the mapping of the modules and a maximum of 30% of the graduating credits.
